Cary woman killed by teenage driver

Teenage drivers in the Cary area and across the United States often have a reputation for bad driving. Teenage brains are not fully developed until they are in their 20s, which can result in teens making bad decisions. A tragic fatal accident recently occurred in Cary caused by a teen driver.

According to reports, a Cary woman who was taking out her garbage can was struck by an SUV driven by a 16-year-old boy. The woman had just dropped her can off at her curb when the SUV rounded the corner on Castalia Drive and hit the woman. The teen driver has been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, failure to maintain lane control and careless and reckless driving.

No one expects their loved one will be injured or killed in a serious accident, especially when they are engaging in routine activities in their driveway. But, negligent drivers are everywhere, and an accident can happen in a split second. If a family finds themselves in a situation in which a loved one was killed or seriously injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to get more information about personal injury legal options. It is important to review the circumstances surrounding the accident, interview witnesses and review police reports to get answers as to what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and other damages.

Losing a loved one in an unexpected accident is both emotionally and financially traumatic. A family who is in this situation may have the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible.
